The bizarre tribute left onlookers scratching their head, much like when Bart Starr donned a, “McCarthy for President” t-shirt while accepting his MVP trophy after Super Bowl I.  Jackson’s publicist later revealed that the hat’s insignia actually was, what he called a Roman Numeral, and it stood for the number 10, leaving the press with nothing to write about the incident except, “Phil Jackson: Meet the Most Arrogant Prick in the Universe.”
